Planning and Zoning


The department provides guidance for property owners, developers and builders in understanding local planning, building and development ordinances and how these ordinances effect the way a property is developed, utilized and maintained. This is accomplished through various ordinances and approval processes. The Township has adopted Zoning, Subdivision and Land Development, Building Code, Property Maintenance and Storm Water Management Ordinances. Permit applications are available on the Building Permits page.
